Rounding out our ongoing coverage of the American Idol Experience world premiere event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on February 12, 2009 is a video series of the entire show that Disney put on for the media.
I’ve split it into several parts for easier consumption. It’s kind of like watching the American Idol television show with commercial breaks… but without the commercials.
Part 1 – Warm-Up Act – Includes a funny bit with David Archuleta
Part 2 – Show Introduction – Features Ryan Seacrest, Paula Abdul, the attraction’s host, and 5 contestants
Part 3 – The Competition – Five contestants sing, judges reactions
Part 4 – Awards and a Winner – Ryan Seacrest and Simon Fuller give the seven past American Idol winners awards, The first Dream Ticket winner is announced
Since I had already uploaded the performances by David Cook and Carrie Underwood, I decided not to duplicate them in the Part 4 video. They took place just before the awards were handed out to the past Idol winners. For the sake of completeness, here they are again:
Following the show, all of the American Idol celebrities gathered outside the attraction for a photo:
